In Japan, NNA reports that Euglena has teamed with Itochu on a demonstration project in Indonesia that will produce euglena microalgae from carbon dioxide and waste heat from a nearby thermal power plant beginning next month, but the location of the plant nor the project were released. Euglena still plans to begin commercial microalgae production from 2025 but the future site hasn’t yet been chosen. Itochu has been collaborating with Euglena since 2013 when it began putting the algae in yogurts.
